The terms inspirational and role model are bandied about all too easily in sport, but Kadeena Cox is worthy of and lives up to the descriptions.
The 25-year-old from Leeds at September's Rio Paralympics became the first Briton in 28 years to win two medals in two sports at the same Games.
She is the first in 32 years to win golds in different sports, having topped the podium in athletics and cycling.
And she was chosen as flag bearer for Britain's most successful Paralympic team since Seoul 1988.
Cox's achievements are all the more remarkable as they came two years after she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, a progressive illness which could become more debilitating over time.
She won the C4/C5 500 metres time-trial on the bike in the velodrome before claiming gold on the athletics track in the T38 400m.
Her main focus for 2017 is taking gold at the London Stadium at the IPC Athletics World Championships.
Her physiotherapy degree concludes in 2018 - the long-term goal is to run her own business - and there is a European Championships in athletics, a to-be-confirmed Para-Cycling Track World Championships, plus the Commonwealth Games. A busy year, even by Cox's standards.
She hopes to go for four, possibly five, events in Tokyo at the 2020 Paralympics and then also compete in the 2022 Winter Games in Beijing, when para-bobsleigh will be on the programme.
The reason she competed in two sports in Rio was because she knew she might not get the chance to compete at all in Tokyo.
And she knows all her targets depend on her MS.
Cox is inspirational for another reason. She was brought up in Chapeltown, a deprived area of Leeds.
She is now working in the community, trying to instil confidence in youngsters.
Cox has described life since Rio as "crazy". She is recognised wherever she goes and asked for selfies and autographs.
She was also named as one of the 16 nominated athletes for BBC Sports Personality of the Year.
Halifax wheelchair sprinter Hannah Cockroft made it a clean sweep of Paralympic gold medals for her this with victory in the T34 800 metres.
Once again the 24-year-old dominated from the start to win her third gold medal in Rio and fifth Paralympic title overall.

The leader of Leeds City Council, Judith Blake, has issued a good luck message to the ParalympicsGB ahead of the Rio 2016 Games.
The Paralympic legacy has come to Sheffield today with some of the stars from the 2012 games on hand to inspire the next generation of athletes.
